Cowans Gap Green Team

If you think park programs are just for kids, think again! Cowans Gap State Park would like to invite the "young at heart" to become a part of the Green Team. This new program series, designed especially for mature adults, offers opportunities for exploring outdoor recreational activities in a safe and friendly environment. Green Team programs will be offered throughout the summer, and will feature topics such as birding, hiking, kayaking, geocaching, digital photography and more. Green Team members will also have opportunity to participate in natural resource conservation projects throughout the year.

Anyone interested in joining Cowans Gap Green Team is invited to a meet-and-greet event on Wednesday, April 29, at 9:00 a.m. at the Brightbill Interpretive Center. This informal gathering will introduce participants to the kinds of programs that will be offered, as well as a schedule of upcoming Green Team events. For more information, call 717- 485-3948 or by e-mail at NRCowansEEPrograms@ state.pa.us. Cowans Gap Green Team programs are free of charge and open to mature adults.
